Join us for the inaugural lectures of UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering (IEDE) Professor Anna Mavrogianni and Professor Nici Zimmermann.

Anna Mavrogianni is Professor of Sustainable, Healthy and Equitable Built Environment at UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering. There she leads the Research Theme on Temperature, Moisture and Air Quality. With a background in architectural engineering and building physics, Anna is an expert in building indoor environmental quality and energy performance analysis, and climate change adaptation of the built environment sector, with a focus on overheating and air pollution at the building and urban scale, and associated impacts on human wellbeing, health and health inequalities.

Nici Zimmermann is Professor of System Dynamics at UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering. She is an expert in systems thinking, system dynamics and participatory modelling. Her research focuses on sustainability, city transformation and housing as well as organisational cognition, decision-making and change. She deploys and also analyses inter- and transdisciplinary research. Nici is a recipient of the Gert von Kortzfleisch Prize and leads her Institute’s research theme on Systems Thinking and Transdisciplinarity.
